Countering Xenophobia, London Pro-Refugee Demonstration Looks to be Huge

Solidarity with Refugees demonstration count as of September 4: 62,000 signed up to attendOn Saturday, September 12, a rally will be held in London to show support for refugees escaping conflict and arriving in Europe.

Two days ago, 30,000 people were expected to attend.

By yesterday, the count of registered attendees reached 62,000.

This morning, as I began writing this post, 80,000 people had committed to attend the demonstration.  By the time I finished this post, the number had ticked up another thousand.

This is not just a feel-good expression of support.  It’s not just about charity.  It’s a political demonstration promoting specific policies to ease the passage of refugees into Europe and to make Europe more structurally welcoming.  From the demonstration’s statement of purpose:

“On September 14th, Theresa May will be attending a meeting of the EU’s 28 member states for emergency talks on Europe’s escalating refugee crisis. It is vital that she takes with her the conviction that the British people that she represents are open to helping refugees and that we can’t continue to allow thousands to die trying to reach the EU and their legal right to claim asylum. We have to ensure that refugees can reach Europe safely. There needs to be either official safe transport provided, or if people could apply for asylum from outside the EU they would be able to enter by official routes. We need to prioritise the fast processing of asylum claims from people from particularly dangerous regions, such as Syria. We can’t allow any EU countries to close their borders or build fences. There needs to be Europe-wide consensus on providing help where it is so desperately needed, relieving pressure on the Mediterranean countries.”

This is a rally promoting a politics of empathy.  It is exactly what the world needs to counter the practice of politics by war.  If you live in the UK, I hope you’ll find a way to be in London on September 12.

    ..and how many is Europe and the US are supposed to welcome? 60.70 100, a million…200 million. 300 millions.? Refugees? FIX problems where they reside. WE cannot take the burden of the whole freaking world. Send them to China, Russia, India, or other Nations. WHY ONLY Europe or WHITE nations?
    Cook take them into your home? How many did you volunteer to welcome into your house?

  2. Quinton Underwood says:

    Frank is right on a number of points. We have been creating a melting pot for all the Nations of the world for too long now. It is not our fault that the populations of people in any country will just sit by over a
    period years and then have to resort to running from their homes. This is something that could very well happen right here to us and sooner than you might think.

    1. frank says:

      obviously I am right. Cook’s type of people have no idea of what kind of disaster these nonsense “ease of passage” policies are about to create. And just like Europe, the US, the left mainly, is engineering our own demise..the vanishing of Western civilization. I don’t know what these idiots are trying to accomplish..but out there there are billions of people that live in poverty and we cannot take them all. Actually we can’t take any more at all! If the objective is to turn the west into another 3rd world hellhole (please look at the areas flooded with refugees and Africans)..we are going to have problems. There will be blood.

        1. frank says:

          Is that your answer..a link? And what is that supposed to mean? LMAO!! Being wrong and not having cogent answers..i understand Cookie. The left is right even when is wrong and has no explanation. Just like the Healthcare “dildo” that the American people got shoved up their asses without being asked.

    What about the wealthy oil Gulf states?

  4. Jim Cook says:

    Obviously, the politics of empathy is lacking in some quarters. Too bad.

    1. frank says:

      Empathy? Really Cookie? And how many do you have in your home? That’s an answer that will never come..like the “African geniuses” one. Unbelievable the nonsense. There are billions of people that live with 1 $ a day Cookie? You want to let all of them in Europe and Northern America?

      1. frank says:

        Again..you answer is a link with no answers. I haven’t seen any marvels coming out of Africa and you haven’t listed one. List them to me…pretend i am dumb. Names, marvelous accomplishments, inventions that changed the world, dates…

      Lame reply, Cookie. Short, one sentence. Prompt. Why, you must be a genius. Or a knee jerk, brainwashed moron.

      1. Jim Cook says:

        You forgot “or a member of the Zionist Occupation Government.” Don’t forget that one.

        1. Robert Milnes says:

          ZOG dupe more like it.

          1. Robert Milnes says:

            So Cookie, you think I’m wrong when I say there is an urn of ashes in Ruth Blumenstein’s and Nancy Benson’s coffin; not the corpse of Ruth Blumenstein and Nancy Benson?
            So, are you willing to be among the media to attend when several people, mostly family and friends of the ZOG victims (Blumenstein and Benson) conduct an impromptu exhumation?
            I will post info on my blog.

          2. Robert Milnes says:

            I visited Ruth’s grave Friday. I wanted to go to her funeral but was too depressed and preoccupied with my imminent -illegal -eviction. Also at this time Doris Klinkenberg was dying of cancer. She had called my landlord and requested his lieniency. That is when he offered me the 90 day extension-The Consent to Vacate aka: The Absurd Document.
            On Ruth’s gravestone it says April 7, 2014. Klinkenberg also died in April,2014. Both took about a month to die. I was evicted in June, 2014.
            Am I to believe that these 2 elderly ladies BOTH developed and in a month or so were dead from cancer at the same time I was being evicted and asking for and/or needing their help? And BOTH fatal? What happened to survival? Cancer is not 100% fatal. There is actually a rather high survival rate these days.
            Ruth is buried-NOT-at Colestown Cemetary, Kings Highway and Church Road, Cherry Hill, Camden County, NJ, in the T section. To her right, Samuel Zucker, to her left, Maghirang.
            Benson is buried-NOT-, in Boulder, Boulder County, CO. I had been interested in her for years especially after her divorce, as a possible First Lady. Well, girlfriend of longshot third party presidential candidate. She also was in a position to help me- A LOT. For her, death came about a year after the diagnosis in August, 2011, in August 2012. I didn’t find out about it until about a year later, August 2013. This was about the time William S. Saturn was acting strangely, leading me to suspect he had been kidnapped. So in August 2013 I was faced with these huge anomalies that I couldn’t seem to understand or do anything about. Meanwhile the problem with my landlord was looming.
            Hopefully the exhumations will solve these anomalies. The ZOG did it.
            Probably did 9/11 also.
            What say you, Cookie?

          3. Robert Milnes says:

            Don’t you people watch Mission Impossible?
            Blumenstein and Klinkenberg and Benson were poisoned-drugged-with appetite and breathing suppressors. Mark told me his mother lost her appetite and lost a lot of weight quickly and was dead in about a month. Benson, according to her obit, had her husband, Ralph Vickrey, present at the time of her death-presumably evident breathing cessation.
            As soon as the coroner/medical examiner is called, the waiting substitute corpse is put in place and the victim given a shot of breathing and appetite stimulants and taken to a facility.
            The substitute corpse which resembles the person/victim, is heavily made up by the mortician. Then after the viewing, the substitute corpse is cremated. That is the urn of ashes that will be found in the coffin at exhumation.
            If there were to ever be an exhumation, it will be said that the corpse was accidentally/mistakenly cremated and the family not informed. This should thwart most investigations.
            So, where are Blumenstein, Klinkenberg, Benson et al? My best guess would be in a secure military/psychiatric facility in Israel.
            What say you, Cookie?

      2. frank says:

        ..obviously as expected. Clear that liberalism is a mental disease. Takes away common sense. Keep blogging nonsense Cookie!

      3. frank says:

        Do you expect anything that makes sense from a liberal? There is no “reason” word in their vocabulary at all…

  5. Jim Cook says:

    Expected attendance is up to 84,000.

    1. frank says:

      84,000 morons…

    Cookie, signing on does not necessarily translate to attendance.
    What about the $3000 paid for by Dubai refugee for Swedish refugee status? Why not stay in Dubai? Not enough money and blondes?

  7. Robert Milnes says:

    Cookie, people like you make war inevitable.
